I've been reading a book recently on OCD; I've learn I have it, and I've realised just how bad it is. Mine is based on magical thinking. It's a process that happens so fast - I get the fear, then the compulsion so fast that it's basically just a series of compulsions. And I give into them 99% of the time. So, the last few days I've decided not to give into them. It has been a mixture of fear and relief.
AnyWhat effect does OCD have on the mind and the body? I am feeling tired all the time, my brain feels like it’s foggy and I can’t think properly. I feel like I’m losing my memory. I could go so far as to say I can feel emotionless. Is this normal? Is this a bi-product of OCD? My OCD is intrusive thoughts that can happen anytime about a fear and then a random compulsion based on what I’m doing at the time to remove it (if I’m typing at the time I must not type [insert work here] otherwise the fear will happen. Any information will be much appreciated.
